Host and player Kara Scott has had a long and diverse career on both sides of the table so far and will put that experience to use as the newest ambassador for Team 888poker.

The signing was announced in a release on Tuesday.

"I'm a big believer in just how much fun poker can be," Scott said, "and adore being involved with the recreational side of the game, as well as the more serious side.

"Joining the 888poker team is a fantastic milestone for my career and I feel honored to be representing such a key player in the poker industry.

"I'm also really excited to be a part of their impressive team of ambassadors! I am looking forward to a bright and successful future with 888poker."

Currently in Los Angeles getting ready to host the Second Annual American Poker Awards, Scott was unsurprisingly excited to finally reveal the news:

Multitude of Accomplishments Pave the Way

With over a decade of experience at the felt, in front of the cameras and as an ambassador for varied companies across the global poker industry Scott is a natural pick to continue building the 888 pro team.

Kara and poker go way back.

She'll join Dominik Nitsche, Sofia Lovgren, Nicolau Villa-Lobos and Jackie Glazier, among others, in sharing the joys of poker with recreational players across the globe starting with the 888Live Series in London next month.

Among other roles Scott has been the host of poker shows on Sky Poker in the UK, High Stakes Poker in the US, the European Poker Tour and the WSOP on ESPN. 

She was also the host of the rec-player focused Battle of Malta for its first two years and a long-time ambassador for Party Poker.

On the felt she's collected over $640k in live earnings headlines by a second-place finish in the 2009 Irish Poker Open.

To ring in Scott's new role as part of Team 888poker a $3,000 "Welcome Kara Scott" Freeroll will run on Monday, Feb. 29, at 7:05 pm GMT.

A $100 bounty will be won by whomever knocks her out of the tournament. No password is needed to register.
